DIY if you weren’t aware stands for Do It Yourself and DFY stands for Done For You. Let’s get into the categories!
This is a mix. I used to always get them waxed… Then I started doing them myself. I’ll still allow them to grow wild occasionally and treat myself to getting them done in the hope of finding the perfect shape for my face as I tend to play it fairly safe when doing them myself.
I always get my hair done professionally. I have a hairdresser that I LOVE and would trust with my life (Hi Dympna!). When I was younger I used to use home dying kits and I firmly believe that they wrecked my hair so I refuse to use them now.
I have never had a pedi. I hate feet! I have had a few manicures but lately I tend to do them myself. I find it really relaxing and I normally do my own Shellac at the same time.
4. Body Hair Removal
This is a combination. Some I do myself, some I get others to do. Depends on the context/method etc.
5. Makeup for a special Occasion
I used to get my makeup done but since training as a Makeup Artist myself I haven’t let anyone else do my makeup for any occasion. The only exception to this was for my sisters wedding and to be honest it killed me letting someone else loose. It turned out beautiful but I just felt very strange about it.
This is all me! I don’t let anyone else at my skin since I had a rather expensive facial about 4 years ago that ruined my face for ages afterwards, leaving it really dry. I have certain products that are ‘pampering’ products for me and I love to do a pampering evening with them.
So which do you DIY, which are strictly DFY and which depend on time, money etc? Let me know in the comments!
